    Mustering the full powers of the title's cast and creative team, Excalibur #17 brings forth once again the old-school flair and appeal of this team without sacrificing its own feel and look as a 'Dawn of X' highlight. In fact, I would go so far as to say Excalibur #17 could be one of the best issues of the series so far. Equipped with the weird charm of the past and the slick production of the present, Excalibur #17 is a winner. Read Full Review

    I give props to Tini Howard for using this issue as a doorway to demonstrate the unbreakable support system that Betsy has. In one reality she has the love from a nation and people who will do her any favor, and in the reality we are more familiar with she has the strength of a team that refuses to give up on her return. With each issue this lovely creative team continues to surprise me in wonderful ways while keeping my love for Betsy Braddock alive and strong. Read Full Review

    EXCALIBUR is getting better. However, it has some extra baggage that, in my opinion, needs to be left behind. When Howard took the time this issue to focus on the dear Captain, the issue popped! Betsy is the queen… literally! She makes this engine purr. Nonetheless, when Howard continues to showcase the other EXCALIBUR team members, it just seems to come off as disjointed, almost comedic, and uncharacteristic of many of the members. Howard needs to stick with what works and thats Captain Britain and an entire Corps of HER!!! Part ways with the current roster, refocus, and I think this series could be something special. Readers, there is promise here and Im excited to see whats going to happen next for the first time in a long time. Pick this issue up and let me know what you think. Have a great week and God bless!
